Brand New



Brand New is an American rock band from Long Island, New York. Formed in 2000, the band consists of Jesse Lacey (vocals, guitar), Vincent Accardi (guitar, vocals), Garrett Tierney (bass guitar, vocals), and Brian Lane (drums, percussion); they are joined by Benjamin Homola (percussion) and Kevin Devine (guitar, vocals) for their live performances.[1] From 2005 to 2013, the band also included Derrick Sherman (guitar, backing vocals, keyboards).[2] The band is recognized as one of the most influential within the 2000s alternative rock and emo scene, celebrated for making artistic statements with their music while their peers aimed for commercial success.[3]

During the late 1990s in Levittown, New York, Jesse Lacey, Garrett Tierney and Brian Lane were all members of the band The Rookie Lot. They eventually split off from the other members of the group, and in 2000 formed Brand New in Merrick, New York.[1] The band signed to Triple Crown Records and in 2001 released their debut studio album, Your Favorite Weapon. Their second album, Deja Entendu, was released in 2003 and marked a stylistic change for the band, one that garnered an extremely positive critical reception.[4] The album's first two singles, "The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows" and "Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades", both received airplay on MTV2 and Fuse TV, entering the top 40 on the United Kingdom Singles Chart. Deja Entendu was eventually certified gold in the United States.

Brand New moved to Interscope Records and released the critically acclaimed The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me in 2006. "Jesus Christ" became their highest charting single in the US, peaking at number 30 on the Alternative Songs chart. In March 2008, the band started their own record label, named Procrastinate! Music Traitors. Their fourth album, Daisy, was released in 2009 and became their highest charting album in the US, reaching number six on the Billboard 200. The band released two non-album singles following Daisy, "Mene" in April 2015 and "I Am a Nightmare" in May 2016. Brand New surprise-released their fifth album Science Fiction on August 17, 2017, two days after announcing its release on vinyl. Receiving both critical acclaim and commercial success, it became Brand New's first number-one album on the Billboard 200.

Frontman Jesse Lacey has stated that the band will break up in 2018, along with recent T-shirt designs and lyric book inserts hinting at that possibility as well.[5][6]
